Is Being Lonely Affecting Your Health, Energy, and Success?

Loneliness has serious repercussions – take action to improve your life today.

A recent article in The New York Times discusses the “Surprising Effects of Loneliness on Health.” The article certainly raises questions and concerns about the phenomenon of feeling lonely, and may make you rethink how much time and energy you devote to your relationships and social connections.

Why Loneliness Is Bad for You

Loneliness and social isolation are bad for you because they raise the levels of stress hormones in your body and increase inflammation (even if you’re not realizing that this is happening or don’t feel stressed). In turn, the added stress and inflammation on your body can affect your health by increasing the risk of:

  • dementia
  • heart disease
  • arthritis
  • depression
  • type II diabetes
  • and MORE

The above list is not inclusive; stress and inflammation have been shown to have an effect on nearly all of the body’s systems, ranging from the ability to manage weight to control emotions to cancer risk.

What You Can Do

If you are socially isolated or lonely, it’s not just your physical health that may suffer; your energetics may be at risk too, which can have a direct effect on your business and personal success. If you are feeling lonely, things that you can do include:

  • Be proactive – remember that not being lonely probably won’t just happen – you’ll need to make an effort;
  • Sign up do something with others, like volunteer with a community project;
  • Get out – go somewhere and do something, even if it’s just taking yourself out to dinner (and chatting with whoever helps you);
  • Make an effort to initiate a conversation with others;
  • Become a part of something, such as joining a church, athletic group, gym, book club, etc.;
  • Remember that loneliness is a feeling, not your reality.
